Shy, introverted, and kind-hearted Surinder "Suri" Sahni is an office worker for Punjab Power. He quietly falls in love with the daughter of his former professor, beautiful and vivacious Tania "Taani" Gupta, whom he first sees during the preparations for her wedding. Upon their first meeting however, Taani jokingly berates and blames him for setting an impossible set of standards (reiterated by her father) that she was never able to meet as a child. A short while later, Taani's father suffers a heart attack when the entire wedding party learns that her fiance and his family were killed in a traffic accident. Fearing that Taani will be alone in the world, the professor asks Suri to marry her. Suri concedes; Taani tearfully agrees only to please her father. Surinder is married to Taani but there is a huge age gap between them. There is no real romance in the marriage. Then, a dance reality show called "Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi" airs and Taani wants to participate but can't because her husband is not 'hip and happening', she has a fear of losing and she also fears that her friends will laugh at her. Surinder overhears this problem and decides to go in for a makeover. He watches some movies and learns to dance in order to woo his young wife. Throughout the show Taani keeps falling in love to with this 'new and improved' Surinder without once realizing that he's her husband. Throughout the show Taani keeps falling in love with this 'new and improved' Surinder without once realizing that he's her husband. They want to run away together.

A must see. This is a great romantic film that's perfectly suited for a fun afternoon with friends, popcorn, and pizza.

I wonder if J Balvin saw this film prior to shooting his video "Bobo." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0GvLP2C2w9U

Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi is a beautiful film! It has the usual music, dancing, and pomp that you'd expect from a Bollywood movie, but it also has a whole lot of heart and humor.

Taani is about to be married, but her fiance is killed in a traffic accident. Taani's father has a heart attack when he hears the news, but before he dies, he asks Taani if she will agree to marry his favorite student, shy Surinder. The couple must learn how to live together and maybe, someday, to love one another.

Look out, Taani partner! There is a tiger hiding in those khaki pants, and he is going to burn up the dance floor. I love the theme song. I have been singing it for weeks.

Films like this ruin films like CHENNAI EXPRESS, because that film had no real purpose. RAB NE BANA DI JODI has purpose, but also heart: by ultimately championing the quietly unexceptional protagonist, SRK infuses more power into his performance than any of his Rahul characters.

Special mention must be given to Vinay Pathak, who really makes this movie live. Also the songs are fantastic.

Parental rating: suitable for younger viewers

personal rating: 9/10
